LAHORE, Mar. 18, 2023 (TBINN)
In a relief to embattled Imran Khan, a top Pakistani court in Lahore granted protective bail to the former prime minister of Pakistan today in eight terrorism cases and a civil case after he appeared before the court, hours after another court suspended non-bailable arrest warrants against him till March 18, 2023 in a corruption case.
Imran Khan, the 70-year-old chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Party, travelled to the Lahore High Court in a bullet-proof vehicle to seek protective bail in nine cases.
A two-member bench of the L.H.C., comprising Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh and Justice Farooq Haider conducted the hearing on bail pleas filed against the cases that are lodged under terrorism sections, according to sources and local media.
